While talking on launch of the Chandrayaan-2 mission, ISRO former chief AS Kiran Kumar said that the Chandrayaan-2 is ready for launch on July 22. "Chandrayaan-2 is now ready for launch on 22 July. We intend to move towards the moon on August 14 and land on the moon around September 6. All the activities are in full swing and we are getting ready for the event on July 22," the former ISRO chief told ANI. Although, while reacting on technical slang, former ISRO chief said, "Any system of this magnitude, we keep testing up to various levels and during one test we found there was a shortcoming, that has been overcome and we have made sure that it satisfies those test conditions, so we are ready to go now".
